This restored 100 year old stone cottage is not just a place to come. It is a place to return to. Its light and privacy allow deep peace and dream-time on the shore of Lough Arrow. It lies at a distance of 4 miles north of Boyle and approx 15 miles from Sligo. Lough Arrow is one of Ireland’s renowned brown trout lakes, fishing is free and boats and ghillies are available on request. Carrowkeel Megalythic tombs and the Bricklieve mountains of Sligo are a short drive away.
“Dymphna's Cottage is just as pictured: a delightful stone house on a quiet lane on the shore of Lough Arrow. For us it was an oasis of tranquility and beauty. The house itself is cozy and welcoming; I felt immediately at home there. The rooms are diminutive, nothing like our austere, cavernous contemporary spaces. The very thick walls add to a sense of security, protection. This is a great place to go within--but also to go out into nature, in the row boat, or enjoying the mile-long walk down this lane or other ones nearby. From every window there is an attractive view of gardens, stonework, paths. It was a privilege to stay here, and I certainly hope to do so again.”

“This was my all-time favorite Air Bnb stay, and I will DEFINITELY look into staying here again next time I'm in the Roscommon/Leitrim area. The home was cozy and had everything we needed. Patricia (who cares for the property when Wendy is away) was so responsive and helpful whenever we needed anything. We loved having a dishwasher and laundry on site, and enjoyed evening peat fires in the living room. The gorgeous views on the drive to and from the cottage made the stay simply magical. Thank you for everything! We were so sad to leave.”

“Catherine was very patient with me before I arrived when I was trying to rearrange my dates. I changed them back and forth a few times on the actual day of arrival and Catherine worked with me to sort it out to my satisfaction which was very much appreciated. When I came in one day with wet gear and needed to go back out in an hour Catherine was very helpful and dried them in her dryer for me. The accommodation itself was perfect, en suite. Very clean and comfortable. A few minutes walk from town. I would recommend Catherine’s accommodation for sure and if I was ever back in the area I would use it myself.”
